Double the sauce and add a few tbsp honey

Delicious! My husband said it was one of the nicest things I'd cooked (although he says that almost every time I do a new dish!). I did drizzle a little bit of honey over the salmon which I think improved it, and I stirred the leftover marinade through the stir-fried veg. This is one to repeat.

I doubled the sauce and added 3 tbsps honey as well. So yummy and quick to do will definitely be doing it again.

Incredibly good, easy and delicious recipe, Couldn't rate it more highly. I doubled the sauce and drizzled it over the rice and stir fried veg. All my children loved it - even our very very fussy eater who only likes bland food. Brilliant recipe and will be made again.

I liked this. It was good and spicy, but for some reason I was expecting it to be sweeter and stickier. I think I would add a bit of honey to this next time.

I replaced the soy sauce with tamari as I wanted it to be gluten free. I also replaced the fresh ginger (didn't have any in) with ground. Very easy and very tasty. Will definitely do this recipe again.

Nice flavours and really easy to do. I halved my quantities and didn't want to put the oven on for such a small amount so gently cooked the salmon in a frying pan, turning carefully and often.

Thanks for your question. We used light soy sauce but you could use either in this recipe.
